the poor so it's a little disheartening to hear michele bachmann or mitt romney in the speech suggest it's a problem that so many people don't pay taxes. what we want is fewer people paying taxes, and those that day paying less. ben said that's a concerted theory to starve the beast and starve the government. we think morally and economically it's a better system when people pay less in taxes and that should accompany less spinning. >> all this redistribution of wealth stuff. the president wants to redistribute the wealth in the country and that's what the republican talking point is, and we have a chart i want to show. doesn't the tax code. >> what i was just talking out. >> isn't that what it does, redistributes the wealth. >> progressive taxes. >> these shady areas, guys, these are where there have been -- you can come along, it's already. republican presidents, the red shaded areas. earned income tax credit, look at all the taxpayers not paying. moochers and deadbeats. just the way it works. >> your chart illustrates the point i just made. republicans are responsible for u

former prosecutor and i'm strong and informed. he sometimes makes michele bachmann look like a hippy. >> does this bring back this whole war on women narrative that's not repful to the republicans? >> of course it does. i have two words for todd akin. he is idiot-like. it does. it sends a message to the broader public and certainly independent voters in missouri that the republican running there is prehistoric. it brings up issues that republicans don't want to talk about right now. we want to talk about economic issues and not the issues that todd aakin keeps dragging back in. >> some folks came out for him in recent days saying the republican establishment needs to get behind him. there's indications they're thinking about it. if they did that, would that be a big mistake? >> well, it's a strategy of necessity. he's the senate slot that could bring the majority to the republicans, so they don't have a choice now because he's in the race. they're trying to save him. this is a good example of what happens when you make the wrong bet in the primaries and elect the wrong people to repr

michele bachmann's anti-muslim witch-hunt in congress harks back to the day of joseph mccarthy because we've experienced the bouts of hate before. the real difference though today is that there is an active network of individuals that use tools like the internet to spread their venom in society and what they have effectively done is metastasized the social cancer growing among us. >> eliot: now part of the problem as you would see it is you have the voice of lee she wrote the cover story of "newsweek" this week from within the islamic community saying those who spread what you view as fearmongerring are what? there is a core kernel of violence in the religion. how do you respond to a voice like hers that is so powerful when people watch her? >> the "newsweek" cover was undoubtedly you know, terrible. and tina brown, folks at "newsweek" should be ashamed of themselves. asking ellie to write a cover story called muslim rage would be like asking you know mel gibson to write a story about jews in the united states. ann ellie is an inside figure. she's someone that sort of sells this provoc

carolina, paul rand from kentucky and michelle bachmann from minnesota. house majority leader eric cantor from virginia fired up the crowd when he criticized president obama's healthcare overhaul and its controversial mandate that organizations including catholic church and catholic groups have to provide to insure contraception. >> many of our fellow americans are now being forced to take our government to court to sue them, to sue our government in order to practice our faith. now this is not what america is about, and this is why we must repeal obamacare. >> reporter: congressman ryan is off to a rally in virginia, but there -- there has been a response from the obama campaign to his remarks here today. they say, congressman ryan had, quote, over-the-top, dishonest attacks in his speech today. jon. jon: but no specifics apparently. they didn't point to anything this that release that they called dishonest. >> reporter: they were just responding to the speech in general. jon: okay. thanks very much. molly henneberg in washington. jenna: school administrators taking no chances today foll

flirted with this idea of nominating people like herman cain and michele bachmann. >> stephanie: clint eastwood talking to a chair was the speech of the convention. how sad is this? 20% of viewers rated eastwood's bizarre speech as the high light, compared 17% for mitt romney, and 9% for paul ryan. >> their convention was so negative and such an attempt to actually introduce this guy who has been running for president for ten years. this convention paints a story of the president and first lady while connecting the policies. >> stephanie: i really wanted to say, this is how you do a convention. >> that's the way you do it. >> stephanie: and he did it with such charm and humor, in a way -- it was devastating. >> it was an indictment absolutely. and so much better than george w. bush's speech in tampa.

stage. i saw michele bachmann and herman cain. >> yeah. this was, if anything, tampa was a celebration of republican unity but joe is right that for every convention when you have a challenger who has gone through a primary you do have to go through this process. let's not forget in 2008 at the democratic convention 40% of democrats still wanted hillary clinton to be their nominee. >> that's right. >> that was significant division. and obviously it didn't really hurt barack obama all that much. bill: to both of you in the 30 seconds left, todd, does this make a difference and how much of a difference united versus divided or division or unity however you want to define it, how does that play out in '64 days? >> it would make a significant difference if it were true but it is not true. the fact is republicans are overwhelmingly united behind mitt romney. democrats are overwhelmingly united behind barack obama. bill: joe, give you the last word. >> whatever divisions there are they will be unified by the republican urge to defeat barack obama. you don't need, may be ideological divisions

look at. between obama and romney, and they are both in the two range. michele bachmann -- i do not know what it necessarily tells you, but it is sort of a fun thing to look at. it does provide you links to every single fact check that i or my colleagues have done for the candidates. >> excuse me. >> good morning. david, george mason university. i think we have seen in the campaign so far that both candidates are in the position of being challenged. flip-plopped positions. i have noticed so far that both governor romney and president obama, when challenged by a voter or a journalist, it is not to say, "well, the facts have changed at the facts are different. the facts i look at now are not the facts that existed when that was my belief." instead, there are levels of equivocation or bluff. i think one latino group challenged him on keeping the promise of immigration reform that he intended to make. right then and there, i was hoping the president would say, "well, the picture is different. let's look get it imperatively." instead, it was something like, "i meant i would try." why do
